An Animal Rescue is a group or organization that is dedicated to the adoption of unwanted pets. Animal rescue groups take in unwanted pets from shelters and try to find them a new home. These groups also provide training and information to new adopters about animal behavior. They are a good way to help homeless animals find a loving, permanent home.
Many animal rescues rely on donations to keep their doors open. You can help by volunteering at a local shelter. Most animal shelters have a variety of different jobs that you can perform. Volunteers may help with adoption, training, or providing veterinary care. You can also help by organizing fundraisers to support animal rescues.
The number of animals entering shelters is staggering. In 2011, 3.1 million dogs and cats were brought to these organizations. These animals come to these shelters due to strays, owner surrenders, and animal cruelty cases. Thankfully, there are many animal rescue organizations out there that are dedicated to saving as many animals as possible. They are committed to finding the right home for each animal.
When adopting a pet from an animal rescue, make sure you have the necessary documentation. This includes medical records, and a blank follow-up form, which the rescue will send to you. Keep all the paperwork in a manila envelope and label it with the name of the animal you’re adopting.
